this is by far the hardest descision i have to make for the wedding- im perfectly fine with getting married at our local courthouse a few days before we leave and then doing a symbolic ceremoney in DR but im catching alot of slack from my future inlaws- there religous and my family is not, i just want to avoid all the paper work hassle and i really wanted to get Pastor Rick york he does such a great job as the other option is a (broken english 5 min Traditional ceremony) should i be more considerate? nope dont think so lol

We are having a small ceremony for the family that isnt able to come to mexico, they will be about 6 people there and its going to be in my grandmas backyard with a friend of theirs whos a JP. We initially were just going to go down to the courthouse and have the papers signed but once the idea popped into my head that I could give homage to my grandparents and my dad who wont be there in Mexico, it was a done deal. My FI's family isnt overly pleased, they are worried we will feel married before mexico. Im honestly a little worried about that to but hey who doesnt want 2 weddings!! LOL

We are doing our legal ceremony at home -- haven't 100% decided when (before or after, how many days etc) but I think it will be less of a headache and cheaper than dealing with the medical and translation required to do a legal ceremony in Mexico. We are only letting a few people know that we won't be legally married in Mexico (mostly the friends who are close enough to know that a legal ceremony in Mexico requires blood test etc since I was on the fence about this for a while so they heard my pro/con arguments).
